Zayn Malik’s New Tattoo Confirms That He’s a Harry Potter Superfan

This year has been off to a busy start for Zayn Malik. He got new eye tattoos on his chest (that fans speculate could be in honor of Gigi Hadid), then he got a massive new chest tattoo (of a red wolf) and now he’s chosen one of his most magical tatts yet, with his new Harry Potter-themed ink.

The ex One Direction star got a “dark mark” in honor of the infamous antagonist of the Harry Potter series, Lord Voldemort.

In new paparazzi shots, Malik was spotted in Florida relaxing by the pool with a noticeably large new tattoo below his right knee.

He chose a photo of Voldemort angrily battling in a fight scene, and while it could be from a number of legendary Voldemort duels, it most closely resembles his face during the Battle of Hogwarts in Harry Potter and the Deathly Hallows.

Like most of his other tattoos, it’s hard to tell why he chose the specific ink. Back in January he showed off two new tattoos of eyes on his chest that looked closely resembled his girlfriend Gigi Hadid’s. And not surprisingly, fans went wild.

“Wait did zayn seriously get a tattoo of Gigi’s eyes,” one fan said on Twitter.

Another tweeted: “Y’all this boy zayn really got a tattoo of Gigi’s Eyes.”

Bella Thorne Shows Off a New Tattoo in Topless Photo

On Friday, Bella Thorne gave her fans a risqué first look at one of her new tattoos.

“New lil tat 😍🐥,” the Famous in Love star wrote as she unveiled the fresh ink with a topless picture on Instagram.

The tattoo — which is located alongside her shoulder — reads “I Love You” in colorful ink.  

The former Disney Channel star also playfully teased her second new tattoo, writing, “Guess what my other tat says it’s on my hip ;).”

The 20-year-old quickly solved the mystery by posting a photo of her new hip tattoo on her Instagram story.

“Bite me,” it says.

Thorne later shared a second photo of her new shoulder tattoo on Twitter, but this time there was a mysterious red mark on her forehead that turned out to be “an upside down cross written in cranberry juice,” as she wrote alongside the image.

The Babysitter actress is no stranger to stripping down for the camera and has been open about feeling insecure about her body.

Sharing a unretouched nude from her GQ Mexico shoot in September, Thorne revealed that she “specifically asked for no re touching on this photo, and lemme tell you I have insecurities, about pretty much everything. That’s natural & that’s human.”

“You might look at this photo and think oh shush bella, but just know everytime someone looks in the mirror they simply don’t see what everyone else sees,” she continued.

She also added that “as a public persona,” she knows that every photoshoot with a magazine will likely be retouched a little. “Cuz yeah if they show my acne scars or a wrinkle in my forehead or my teeth aren’t perfectly white, people will look at the photo and say no she’s not perfect and usually most people don’t want the public trashing and I get it, But f— it I’m here to tell you that’s right I’m not F— PERFECT,” she said. “IM A HUMAN BEING AND IM REAL. So hip hop your asses over the fence and GET OVER IT.”

Demi Lovato has officially inked herself with none other than the king of the jungle. That’s right, Lovato now has a lion’s face on her hand. 

The “Confident” singer’s new tattoo was done on Tuesday by New York-based celebrity tattoo artist Keith “Bang Bang” McCurdy, who also inked Cara Delevingne’s lion tat on her finger. 

We certainly see the similarity, but Lovato was quick to call out anyone who thinks she’s a copycat: 

As for the significance of Lovato’s new ink? She hasn’t said anything yet, but we’re sure there’s a meaningful reason behind it.

Tattoo Of Packer’s Aaron Rodgers In Jockstrap Has Homophobes Losing Their Minds

A tattoo artist in Denver, Colorado, enraged a group of homophobic trolls on Friday when she posted a new piece of work depicting a male figure wearing a jockstrap and Green Bay Packer Aaron Rodgers’ football jersey.

Alisha Rice did not expect the backlash when she posted the photo on her Instagram ― but trolls were quick to emerge from the depths of the internet.

One user wrote, “What in tarnation is this gay ass sh*t? This is what y’all do up in Wisconsin? Don’t even look like his face and that helmet is severely f**ked. This some homo ass sh*t.”

Another added, “The gayest tattoo ever. I’m sure A rod don’t want this shit on anyone.” There are many, many other comments that can be viewed on the artist’s Instagram.

“The idea for the tattoo was a combination of the client wanting a traditional American style male pinup and a packers tattoo,” Rice, who has been tattooing since 1992, told The Huffington Post. She noted that the tattoo wasn’t necessarily supposed to be Rodgers and that his “particular jersey was selected because [he] is a football legend and the client admires him as a player and as a person.”

Two days after posting the initial image of the tattoo, the 43-year-old artist followed up with another post directly challenging the “homophobic football fans and armchair tattoo critiques” she had received: 

Rice told The Huffington Post the tattoo was never meant to be a comment on Rodgers’ sexuality, as some commenters charged, but instead was “just meant to be a fun, tongue in cheek ode to team.” 

She added, “If anyone has an issue with the tattoo I’d challenge them to ask themselves why and reflect on the apparent double standard regarding the sexualization of the male and female forms.”

Alisha Rice is tattoos at Think Tank Tattoo in Denver, Colorado. For more from her, check out her Instagram page here.

Weird That Thomas Edison Kind Of Invented The Tattoo Gun, No?

Thomas Edison is often billed as America’s greatest inventor. While the title is normally discussed in reference to things like the electric light bulb and motion picture camera, we’d like to humbly add the tattoo gun to the list.

You see, it was Thomas Edison’s 1876 discovery of the electric pen, the terrifying-looking device above, that was the inspiration for the original electric tattoo machine.

Originally, Edison’s device was meant to create multiple copies of a single image or text by passing over a stencil with an inked roller, which moved at 50 punctures per second, transferring the stencil’s contents to a sheet of paper below. 

As a writing implement, the electric pen was a flop. But it caught the eye of a New York tattoo artist named Samuel F. O’Reilly, who, in 1891, created the first electric tattoo needle based on Edison’s prototype. The device increased the speed and accuracy of a process that had long been done by hand. 

So, basically, brilliant inventor Thomas Edison is the reason your ink looks so damn fly. Maybe that fun fact will come in handy when convincing your parents that your dream tattoo is in fact the product of a genius, historic American invention. You are simply doing your part to pay tribute to an American hero, is that so wrong? 

An original model of Edison’s electric pen is coming to the New York Historical Society in February, as part of an exhibition on the history of tattoo culture in New York City. The exhibit also includes painfully cool photos collected from the 300 year history of permanent body art, definitely disproving your family’s theory that tattoos are just a trend. 

Tattooed New York” will be on view from February 3, 2017 until April 30, 2017 at the New York Historical Society.

A Fan Got A Tattoo Of Jose Bautista’s Bat Flip

Jose Bautista’s bat flip on Wednesday night during Game 5 against the Texas Rangers was phenomenal and enjoyed by millions of people who aren’t named Sam Dyson.

One fan enjoyed Joey Bats’ bat flip so much that he wanted to make sure he would never forget that moment. And how would he do that? Get a tattoo of it, of course.

“I have heard and seen some crazy stuff in the last 24 hours but this one takes the prize home!!” Batista wrote in an Instagram post about the fan’s ink on Thursday.

From now on, every time this person gets changed in the morning, they will see Joey Bats tossing the hell out of a bat after hitting a series-clinching home run.

Maybe this will inspire a Rangers fan to get a tattoo of Sam Dyson giving it up?

Coolest Dad Ever Gets Cochlear Implant Tattoo To Match His Daughter’s Real One

One father found a rad way to stand by his daughter. 

Alistair Campbell‘s 6-year-old daughter, Charlotte, is deaf and recently got a cochlear implant for her right ear, the New Zealand Herald reported. But right before the 6-year-old from Taupo, New Zealand, received the device — her second — Campbell decided to get one as well in a show of solidarity. His, however, came in the form of a tattoo on his head. 

(Story continues below.) 

On Monday, the dedicated dad posted photos of himself sporting his new tattoo on social media — one of which included Charlotte alongside him with her implant for her left ear in plain view. The moving photo generated buzz across the Internet and was picked up by various media outlets.

It’s not difficult to understand why. 

“I shared the photos with my friends and family to see, I never expected this huge response,” Campbell told The Huffington Post. “I’m pleased I have helped to raise awareness for all cochlear implantees.”

Charlotte received her first implant back when she was 4 years old. The tattoo, Campbell says, is all about honoring his beloved daughter through the challenges she’s faced. 

“Charlotte’s journey has been quite a hard journey for her and for us,” the father told Stuff.co.nz. “The tattoo was a tribute — this was all about her, not me.”

The tattoo took about 45 minutes to complete, according to Buzzfeed News. As for the pain, Campbell said it was nothing he couldn’t handle. He’ll be letting his hair grow back, but is planning to shave it off, revealing the tattoo for special occasions or when his daughter requests to see it, the New Zealand Herald reported.

The dad told HuffPost that while his daughter doesn’t quite understand the tattoo as of yet, she will come to appreciate its significance as she gets older. 

Campbell’s support for his daughter doesn’t stop there.

In December, he’ll participate in a charity boxing event to raise money for Hear 4 Kidz Trust, a group that supports kids with hearing loss in Taupo.

Everybody Has A Tattoo, But Nobody Talks About The Side Effects

By Kathryn Doyle

(Reuters Health) – Tattoo health and safety regulations tend to focus on short-term risks like infections, but little is actually known about the long-term risks of living with ink under your skin, according to a new review in The Lancet.

“Almost everybody these days has a tattoo, and nobody is talking about the side effects of ink deposits,” said senior author Dr. Andreas Luch of the German Federal Institute for Risk Assessment in Berlin.

“There is no proof that these ink ingredients are safe, being injected into the body,” Luch told Reuters Health.

Between one and five percent of tattooed people suffer a bacterial infection, and some people can have allergic reactions to the ink, according to the report.

Those are short-term effects. It is harder to measure the long-term effects of ink since tattoo inks are in most countries classified as cosmetics, Luch said.

Since the inks are classified as cosmetics, their long-term toxicology can’t be tested in animals, Luch said. In his opinion, tattoo inks should be a completely different product category.

The skin barrier effectively keeps surface cosmetics out of the body, he said.

But tattoo ink is injected into living tissue, which contains blood vessels, nerves and immune cells.

“We need to assume that all of these ink ingredients, including preservatives, processing aids or whatever, will become systemically available in the body over time,” Luch said. “Regulation based on cosmetics is insufficient.”

Examining the bodies of the deceased who have had tattoos for decades has shown that up to 90 percent of the ink has disappeared from the skin, he said.

“We cannot answer the question what is going to happen with these inks,” whether they accumulate in organs over time or are excreted, Luch said.

Similar questions remain for laser tattoo removal: when the pigments are fractured and fragmented under the skin – where do they go – he added.

“In the U.S. the (Food and Drug Administration) has the authority to regulate inks, but is not currently doing so,” said Dr. Michi Shinohara, a dermatologist at the University of Washington in Seattle who was not involved in the review.

“Regulation of tattoo parlors and tattoo artists is left to the states, and the requirements for operating vary widely from very minimal (bloodborne pathogen training) to fairly complex (hundreds of hours of apprenticeship),” Shinohara told Reuters Health by email.

There are no industry standards for ink ingredients, the industry is minimally regulated, and few problems with tattoos are reported to authorities, she said.

Modern tattoo inks mostly contain organic pigments, but can also include preservatives and contaminants like nickel, arsenic and lead, Luch and his coauthors note. In one study in Switzerland, preservatives banned for use in cosmetics were found in 14 percent of tattoo ink samples.

Reactions tend to be more common from colored inks than from black and white ones, Luch said.

Tattooing has been going on for at least 5,000 years, but has become a modern trend, with roughly 120 million people in the western hemisphere having at least one tattoo, Luch said.

“The acute risks are well known,” including pain, bleeding, infection and allergic reaction, Luch said. “The tattooist at least needs to explain that something like this could happen,” he said.

But long term risks, like organ toxicity or cancer, are still unknown, he said.

“It’s an individual decision, we cannot tell someone not to get a tattoo,” Luch said. “I wouldn’t like to have a tattoo on my skin, but if a person likes colored skin, what can I say?”

It’s not necessary for people to stop getting tattoos, Shinohara said, “but I think people should be smart about it – research the parlor, ask about any recent problems, follow the aftercare instructions and report immediately to the tattoo artist and a physician for any problems that occur after tattooing.”

Here’s What I Have to Say About Your F***ing Neck Tattoo

2015-07-02-1435853928-6212113-Necktat.png

New York Adorned

My name is Lori Leven. I own New York Adorned, a tattoo shop in the East Village that will celebrate its 20th anniversary next July. Over the years, Adorned has been home to several of the greatest tattooers working today. Being in the tattoo business for this amount of time and being a tattoo collector personally for even longer, I would like to relay my experiences. 

A few weeks ago, a blogger from Millihelen came into the shop on a busy Saturday looking to get her daughter’s name tattooed on her neck. After explaining to her that we do not tattoo the necks, hands or faces of people who are not heavily tattooed otherwise, she left very upset, questioning our right to tell her what to do with her body.

Hand, neck and face tattoos on lightly or untattooed people has forever been a discussion in the tattoo industry. Many tattooers feel that tattooing these areas is ethically questionable and in fact they are commonly called “Job Stoppers.” Of course, it is not my position to tell someone what to do with their body — but that does not negate the fact that there are social ramifications to having visible tattoos that you are not able to hide. Tattooers also should have the right to have our own professional standards and turn down work that they are not comfortable with.

It is true that having a few small tattoos generally gets no response from today’s public. But get that little tattoo on your hand and shake the hand of the co-op board president who is deciding if you’re right for their building, or the hand of the Admissions Director when you’re trying to get little Goldie into Spence or Dalton, and you will quickly see what it feels like to realize that you are no longer on an equal playing field. These are the complications we are thinking about when we decline to tattoo your neck.

I have never sat for a job interview in my adult life. I live in a bubble called the East Village and will never have to attend a PTA meeting. Yet I can can tell you with 100 percent certainty that there have been several times in my life and career that I have had to climb out of a “tattoo judgement hole” to get to ground zero when dealing with people such as loan officers, landlords and potential mother-in-laws. There have unfortunately been people who do not want to look beyond my skin and who think I am not as smart or worthy because of the tattoo work that they see on me. I’ve always felt strongly that it is not necessary to conform to society’s expectations if they do not work for me, and in having my own neck and hands tattooed I can see where a feeling of hypocrisy could be felt. It obviously would be best if each person was judged on their individual merit, but we do not live in this utopia. Therefore, I set this policy in my tattoo shop.

Tattooers are artists, the medium is skin, that is already a big enough responsibility. Tattooers do not take their profession lightly and we ask that our clients do the same. Remember! It is a permanent change to your appearance that will alter both your life and experiences. As professionals, our advice has your best interest at heart. We will only be with you for a short time, but the work we create will be with you forever. Please choose wisely.

Tattooers are artists, the medium is skin, that is already a big enough responsibility. Tattooers do not take their profession lightly and we ask that our clients do the same. Remember! It is a permanent change to your appearance that will alter both your life and experiences. As professionals, our advice has your best interest at heart. We will only be with you for a short time, but the work we create will be with you forever. Please choose wisely.

Tattoo Artist Turns Girl’s Leg Braces Into A Pair Of Wicked Awesome Disney Villains

A tattoo artist helped to make this girl feel like a Disney star; not a princess or queen, but an awesome villain.

Aaron Guillemette, a tattoo artist in Fall River, Massachusetts, created a set of Disney designs for 8-year-old Hope Laliberte’s leg braces, Today Parents reported. The illustrations feature two villains from classic animated movies — Ursula from “The Little Mermaid” and Cruella de Vil from “101 Dalmatians” — and they’re wicked awesome.

“I’m glad to be in a position where I can help the community in any way,” Guillemette told the news outlet. “When I was first approached about designing Hope’s braces, I thought it would be an awesome idea — especially when I heard what the subject matter would be. Hope wanted Disney villains on her braces, not princesses.”

Hope and her twin sister were born premature at 24 weeks. The 8-year-old has cerebral palsy and a rare form of epilepsy, Yahoo reported, but her sister, Paige, does not. Hope has been wearing leg braces for the past four years but the clinic at Boston’s Children’s Hospital, where her braces are fitted, has limited designs.

Knowing their daughter was a big fan of Disney villains, Hope’s parents, Aaron Lebeau and Pamela Laliberte-Lebeau, turned to Guillemette, who owns the tattoo studio Up in Flames, for some custom designs.

Guillemette painted the Disney characters on sticker paper, which he then applied to Hope’s braces with coats of polyurethane to ensure they stuck, the artist told Herald News. The designs recreated the villains, but also incorporated Hope’s name — making them extra special.

And when Hope first saw her braces? “I screamed,” she told the news outlet.

The experience was special for Guillemette too, as he told Today Parents, “The look on her face when I gave them to her was worth everything it took to make them.”

Dax Shepard Didn’t Want A Wedding Band So He Got This Tattoo Instead

Dax Shepard and Kristen Bell are so not your traditional celebrity couple. When the low-key twosome tied the knot last year at the Beverly Hills Courthouse, the whole thing cost them just $ 142.

So it’s fitting that Shepard went the untraditional, non-flashy route when it came to his wedding band — if you can even call it that. Instead of wearing a ring, the “This Is Where I Leave You” actor had a bell tattooed on his left ring finger in his wife’s honor. And it’s pretty adorable.

During an appearance on “Ellen” on Friday, Shepard discussed his decision to get inked in the name of love.

“I don’t like wearing jewelry, but I felt obliged to warn all the men that I’m taken,” he joked. “I thought a tattoo would be fitting. And her last name, conveniently, is an object I could tattoo.”

In the middle of the tattoo, you can see the letters K (for Kristen), L (for their 18-month-old daughter Lincoln) and a D that we can only assume stands for Dax. Or, given that the couple is expecting their second child together, perhaps it’s for baby number two.

Bell, on the other hand, does wear a ring — and as you might expect, it’s different and totally beautiful.

Keith Gordon Blames Tattoo Fixation On OCD (VIDEO)

Keith Gordon definitely sticks out in a crowd. Of course, that happens when your entire face and most of your body is covered in tattoos.

Five years ago, Gordon, a 58-year-old office administrator in London decided to get as much of his body tattooed as possible, according to Barcroft TV.

He’s been subjected to so much gawking in public that he’s interested in advocating for other misfits.

“I would like to be a spokesperson for anyone suffering any persecution of any type for being body modified or having a different point of view then the norm,” he told HuffPost by email.

The saga started in his teens, when
Gordon first got a lot of tattoos, but he’s spent more than $ 25,000 to have the tats removed so he could get a respectable office job, according to the Metro.

Five years ago, Gordon decided he wanted to re-ink those tats and get a few more to boot. He blames his fixation on obsessive-compulsive disorder, which he was diagnosed with 13 years ago.

“OCD has completely ruled my life. I’m very obsessional,” he said. “Once I get started on something I just get carried away. A lot of people look at me aggressively. They look almost saddened and angry but I don’t understand why – it’s me who’s looking like this, not them.

“But I love the attention. I love being different and I love showing people that it is okay to be different.”

Gordon’s wife, Lisa, 43, says she married her husband for love 13 years ago, but admits she never thought the phrase “for better or worse” applied to extreme facial tattoos.

“I never would have married him if he looked like this when I met him,” she said, according to Orange News. “I feel embarrassed when we are out and everyone stares. But he’s a good husband and a good father and I persevere.”

Despite his wife’s objections, Gordon is planning to get even more ink, including a giant tattoo that spans the whole of his back.

He admits his look makes him stick out in the staid office environment so he’s hoping his outrageous look will get him cast in TV and movie roles.

“I’ve had them done now so I may as well try and make them work for me,” he told Barcroft TV.

Mammoth Book of New Tattoo Art

Mammoth Book of New Tattoo Art


A fantastic, all-new, third volume of tattoo art – both tattoos and original artworks – showcasing the best recent work of the world’s most outstanding tattoo artists. The format is compact, but contains over 600 full-colour photographs of the work of international tattoo art stars, including Frank Carter, Camila Rocha, Dan Smith and Horikazu (see full list of contributing artists below), representing outstanding value-for-money. Over the past 20 years, tattoos have emphatically entered the mainstream, perhaps most notably on the person of UK prime minister David Cameron’s wife Samantha. Whether celebratory tattoos, local landmarks, weddings, gravestones, timepieces, song lyrics, club colours, the Olympic rings, something World Cup-related or even a flight of plaster ducks, more and more people are sporting tattoos. There are also ever more artists who have turned their hands to tattooing, and vice versa. Tattoo styles are changing, too, under the influence of other art forms as traditional methods of designing tattoos – using pencil, marker, ink and pain – are joined by computer-generated art and Photoshop creations. Practically unheard of a few decades ago, women with tattoos are on the rise, and there is also an ever-increasing number of female tattoo artists, a number of whose work is showcased in this book. Full list of contributing artists: Adam Machin, Amy Savage, Anthony Flemming, Camila Rocha, Chris Jones, Davee Blows, Eddie Stacey, Greg Orie, Ian Parkin, Jemma Jones, Kate Shaw, Leigh Oldcorn, Mauro Tampieri, MxM, Oddboy, PriZeMaN, Roxx, Yohann Bonvoisin, Adam Sargent, Andrea Furci, BJ Betts, Chase Tafoya, Claire Reid, David Corden, Emily Wood, Guen Douglas, Ian Saunders, John Anderton, Ken Patten, Luca Ortis, Michael Rose, Nick Skunx, Paul Johnson, Ren Shorney, Stefano C, Aimee Cornwell, Andrew McNally, Bong, Chelsea Shoneck, Crispy Lennox, Dean Taylor, Frank Carter, Hannah Wolf, Johnny Domus, KJT, Mat Lapping, Niki Norberg, Pete Oz, Richard Barclay, S …
